"The first time I went up in the helicopter, it's a very unnerving feeling. You're hanging out of it at a high altitude. Wind is shaking you around, and there's turbulence. There's definitely times where I'm grabbing the seat. But soon as I'm looking through the camera, all that goes away."
Joshua Jensen-Nagle is a prominent Canadian photographer known for his evocative beach photography and nostalgic scenes of European landmarks. Jensen-Nagle's romantic, dreamlike photographs impart nostalgia and purity often through a faraway or overhead view of his subject. His frequent travels abroad inspire many of his photographic series.
"My work is how I view the world. Whatever is going on in my life, whatever I experience or whatever I see, it's just a pure reflection coming through me creatively, and that's what ends up being made."
Jensen-Nagle bases his full-time art practice in Toronto. Having mounted over fifty exhibitions in the last seventeen years, he is widely recognized for his practice and has been collected throughout North America and Europe.
